Hi friends! I’ve styled this scarf many times for you (1, 2, 3, 4), and today I’m showing you how to wear it as a belt. This scarf is 36 inches by 36 inches which allows me to wear it many different ways! First, click here to see how I folded the scarf. You can fold it as few or as many times as you’d like depending on how thick you want your belt. I decided to wear mine thicker, so you can see more of the pattern and color.

I hope this inspired you to wear your scarves a new way!

Friday Finds: Summer Scarves

fridayfinds

When I think of a scarf, most often I think of a cozy scarf you wear to keep your neck from freezing in the winter, but in fact, you can wear a scarf year round. Think of linen, silk and cotton scarves that can brighten and pull together any outfit. I wear them in my hair, of course around my neck, as belts and tied to my bags.

Here are some ways I’ve styled summer scarves before: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. I’ve linked my favorites below, so you can take a shot at styling a scarf this spring and summer.

Talk about the perfect summer dress… This cotton poplin material is lightweight and keeps you looking and feeling cool. I’ve linked similar options, so you, too, can be just as breezy.

I often wear neckerchiefs (here, here and here), so I decided to switch things up and move the scarf to my hair for a more playful look. What are your thoughts? Do I look like I’m back in kindergarten?

Spring, We Welcome You

Spring is officially here (PRAISE!!), and it’s time to transition our closets to the current season. This leather dress, a staple of my fall/winter wardrobe, can easily be transeasonal. Instead of wearing a sweater and boots, I’ve paired this dress with my favorite denim jacket and spring silk scarf. AND, who cares about the “white rule” – don’t be afraid to pull out those white sandals you haven’t worn since labor day.

What pieces in your closet are you transitioning to spring?

A Splurge

I would first like to share that I am now an influencer on rewardStyle! I am beyond excited!!! You can shop my images directly from Instagram if you have the rewardStyle app. More info to come :).

I totally support splurging on pieces that will last a decade or so – a staple black dress, the perfect loafer, or a classic coat. One of my splurges has been this Hermes scarf. The colors and pattern are rich and just look luxurious. I let this piece stand out while keeping the rest of my outfit neutral.

You can find Hermes scarves at consignment stores with the tags still on, but you may have to hunt. I’ve tagged some of my favorites: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.

For the clutch, call Hazen Jewelry in Dallas to get your own!
